Mars360

Hi Everyone,

Long time reader first time poster, and super stoked to be able to share a preview and news of a little game my friends and I have been working on (go easy on us )

Who like us was inspired watching the recent launch of Falcon Heavy? The prospect of getting to Mars in our lifetime seems within reach and that is crazy!! Maybe they'll need test pilots yeh LOL. So we got busy honing our skills on a fun little casual arcade action game that puts you in the hot seat landing incoming rockets on different planets in our galaxy.

We actually partnered with our friends at Revolutionary Concepts (Gesundheit!, UFO on Tape) - who gave us the nod to make a pseudo sequel to their 2012 hit Moon Control and pointed us to this great community, as having some of the best gamers this side of the Vega system, so we'd really be interested in hearing from anyone who'd like to take the game for a literal 'spin'.

It's not an epic space sim by any stretch it's just a fun free homage to NASA, SpaceX and some of our favorite super-hardore arcade classics , like Super Hexagon and the timeless Tempest, and Gyrus. Probably more in the vein of a KetchApp or Voodoo style game - but hopefully with a bit more 'game'

Please if you have the 'right stuff' enlist below for what will be a brutally challenging but hopefully fun experience! The hardcode chip tune beats alone are worth the price of entry - that price being FREE
We're very open to feedback and would love to hear what y'all think!

MARS360 - launching in t-minus 2 weeks and counting.... beta uploading to TestFlight NOW (any publishers out there don't be shy )

hehe that is all we could have hoped for
It uses repeating patterns so you should improve with practice
What is your high score? Did you get as far as the annoying asteroid?
